I didn't know that was even possible. I can't imagine a more miserable career choice - managing multiple HOAs.

Our last one put a lien on our house and never told us. We found at the day we sold it.

Good times. #### HOAs in the ear.

Anyone who chooses to live in one is mentally deficient imho.



Hey... I don't have enough government in my life... I'll choose to live somewhere where the most popular housewife is elected to be in charge.

Hard to disagree. I wouldn't go so far as to say mentally deficient, though. I'm just too much of my own man for it to ever work for me. Some people want that type of security though - like sticking with visiting bank branches in person to deposit checks, or wearing a helmet to go get the mail.

I couldn't do it.  MIL got in trouble for having to many decorative flags in her front garden.  I tend to agree with the HOA, you've got to nip that in the bud with her or else you'll have a condo with 8 easter flags, 6 pinwheels, and who knows what other garden decorations in the tiny front yard.  But I couldn't deal with someone else telling me to mow my lawn.  That's what goats are for.

Ours has about as few teeth as one can have. Basically they collect dues to keep up the entrances to the neighborhood and decorate them at Christmas. $30/year. Vast majority of the rules are just county ordinance. The president is a busy body shit for brains ass clown that has tried to fine people illegally and complains about shit on facebook. There's a serious lack of neighborly attitude and people would rather try and get you fined than offer to help out or even bother to learn your name or hear your story.

I'm happy to be in an HOA. My old house was in a neighborhood and the 3 neighbors that joined my property just decided the didn't need to cut their lawn anymore and they just did a part near their house. Another decided it was okay to park an RV in the street for months at a time.

When you're in that situation you make sure to out-redneck your neighbors!  :P

I suppose there are times when the HOA seems too invasive but other times when you wish you had one.  Two of my sisters live in GA (an hour south and an hour east of ATL) and I've seen some shit.  A sofa in the middle of the front lawn, washers, driers, trucks with 5' high grass growing around it, etc.  There is a balance.  I've heard of neighborhoods where the HOA says "no other standing structures on the property except the house"... so basically no shed.  Because sheds can be a troubling eyesore and no one should have to look at that.  :rolleyes:   Come on, people.

the sad thing is when we moved in one neighbor did landscaping as a side business and kept his and one of the other houses nice and clean. Then they moved away and it all fell apart.

The big problem is that you give power to people that shouldn't have it and it goes to their head. Bottom line is that no one else pays your mortgage but you, and no one else will do the upkeep, and the neighbors are completely unwilling to be real neighbors and have a real community. So giving people that would just as soon let you burn as piss on you power is a big mistake. Giving a company power over you is an even bigger mistake. They are motivated by profit and there are too many horror stories, especially in Florida, an out companies that do nothing but fine people into debt and eventually own the homes. Its criminal.

I'm curious about what causes neighborhoods in my area (without HOAs) to flourish without junk in the yards, tall grass, and RVs parked in the road.
